Indian Rolls Out A High-Performance Carbon-Clad R-Spec Of Its FTR1200 Moto

When Indian Motorcycle first unleashed its FTR1200 back in 2019, the flat track-inspired model represented a major shift for the brand, leaning into a much more sporty and performance-focused segment than ever before. And for 2022, America’s oldest motorcycle marque is cranking the already immensely-capable FTR’s performance prowess up a few notches with the new year’s model lineup.

The entire lineup has received a retuned engine calibration that affords smoother, more predictable power delivery, as well as improved cooling. Tweaked in response to ample public feedback, the 2022 FTR gets narrower ProTaper bars and smaller 17” cast-aluminum wheels, resulting in a lower seat height and an all-around easier-to-control machine. In addition to the existing base model and S and Rally specs, the company has also introduced a new top-of-the-line FTR R Carbon that gains a dual-can blacked-out Akrapovic exhaust, Ohlins suspension front and back and a plethora of carbon fiber items, though it still makes the same 120hp and 87ft-lbs of torque as the base model. And, on top of several new livery options, Indian is also offering a slew of new accessories for the new FTR range. Available now, the 2022 Indian FTR1200 starts at $12,999 and goes up to $16,999 for the new R Carbon-spec.
